The Czech Consulate in New York has recently confirmed with us that they will accept MAILED applications from US citizens. While we recommend attending an in-person appointment if possible as this will provide you with an opportunity to verify your documents with a Consulate official, if you are having difficulty booking an appointment relatively soon or live a considerable distance from New York, this IS NOW an option.
If you are applying at the New York Consulate, you should already have your appointment booked if you will be applying in person. If you have not yet done this, please do so immediately! Please keep in mind that you can schedule your appointment before you receive your immigration documents from OGS, but in order to apply, you will need these documents. OGS will email you once we have received your documents from Prague.
